Hello friends,
and welcome to another easy song tutorial from Swift Guitar lessons.

  21. Muito bom!!!

  22. Thanks Rob, I love your videos. The way you always start out with the full song is refreshing. And all your videos are well nuanced, even simple songs I find learning a lot. For example in blowing in the wind tutorial, the walkdowns, etc etc make me feel like I know how to play a song properly. Thanks a lot man. Going to checkout patreon content.

  31. As a Pink Floyd fan I must say , thank you☺☺☺

  32. Really good!

  33. Look, play and sing like David Gilmour, and teach even better than he! 🙂

  34. Thank you for this lesson , very good vocals too, very nice…

  35. ok….. now what?

  36. How does one teach when they aren't even playing the song correctly? One of the many issues is, it's not Em, it's Emadd9.

  37. You used CM7 yet, so my suggest is Em9/7.

  38. Good job friend! To colaborate I suggest you to use Em9/7 instead Em, and C7M instead C. Al the best to you!

  39. What mic were you using?

  40. Not to be picky but the 1st chord is Em9 with an up stoke of the strings..

  41. can you do LESSONS by rush ?

  42. Roland Wohlschlegel

    Very Nice👍

  43. Daniel Marques

    This reminds me of Time

  46. Didier Laplace

    Wow , great singing really fantastic and also guitar playing and teaching is great, thx a lot , regards

  47. I wonder if you will follow it into "time"

  48. love…

  49. Erik Lundstrum

    Is there something i can sub for the D7#9? My fingers are unable to make that chord, my pinky cannot move side to side while I'm pushing with my ring finger.

  50. nice one, robin
